Rabbit Skunk Red Fox Bobcat

When I was in Maine in November for the artist in residence program, I taught a class to rural Maine eighth graders.  I had to teach at night.  For their assignment, I had each small group of students create a still life out of objects provided by the rangers.  There were lots of skulls.  I was able to borrow the skulls over one weekend.  I am fascinated by what lies below skin and muscle, the sockets that hold the eyes, the size and shape of the teeth and the beauty in the curve of cheek bone.
